Reasons Why Your Visa Could Be Denied
In most cases, a visa denial needs to be appealed within just 30 days of the notice being mailed to you, not necessarily when you first saw the notice of denial. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is not known for extending deadlines so you have to act quickly. Once again, if you are unsure where to start, get into contact with our Garden City immigration law attorneys at your first opportunity.
Our legal professionals can help you collect and fill out a Notice of Appeal, which must be filed before that 30 day time limit expires. The I-290 Notice of Appeal needs to present a clear argument as to why the denial of your visa was incorrect or unjust. A strong starting point is understanding why it was denied in the first place.
Reasons why a visa might be denied include:
- Missing a filing deadline
- Providing incorrect information
- USCIS requests more information from applicant
- Applicant has applied for the wrong visa
- Applicant is applying from a foreign entity currently banned from entry
Are any of these reasons applicable to your visa denial? We will want to thoroughly understand your situation in order to get to the root of the matter. At our law firm, we like to sit down with our clients during an initial consultations to get to know them, their situation, and their objectives. We have found this to be an immense help when dealing with the USCIS and other relevant agencies during the appeal process.
There are many types of visas that can gain someone entry into the United States. Most will only permit temporary entry and permanent residence will have to be obtained later. However, none of this process will be possible if your initial visa application is denied.
